Located in the new Tower280 building, formerly Midtown Tower in downtown Rochester, Bergmann's corporate headquarters is the commercial anchor tenant for a 14 story high-rise building that has become a symbol of the revitalization of downtown Rochester. Bergmann had several goals for this project: to provide an innovative environment that drives an engaged culture, attract and retain a multi-generational workforce, reinforce the corporate brand and support a commitment to sustainability.
Bergmann designers and engineers collaborated to create a space that focuses on both physical comfort and wellness for employees and clients. The team employed daylighting, transparent glass wall systems, energy efficient heat-pump based HVAC and varied furniture styles that offer outdoor views, energy efficiency and enhance overall well-being. Bergmann’s new headquarters is a continued testament to Bergmann’s sustainable building design practice and is LEED ID+C certified.
Lounge spaces, huddle rooms, phone booths and work café areas encourage team collaboration while also offering personal privacy. The space is designed to promote spontaneous connections and socialization across all disciplines and departments. The majority of conference and huddle rooms are outfitted with advanced video conferencing room integration, while some meeting rooms contain no technology to promote interpersonal collaboration.
